|It's clear that Shahrukh Khan is weary of tarnishing his reputation in B-town and the superstar has gone to great lengths to make sure that gossip mongers and tabloids don't get much mileage out of his professional or private life but is the star taking it a little too far?
Shah Rukh recently met up with Roshan Abbas and Pritam, the director and music director of his new production Always Kabhi Kabhi; the agenda was certain lyrics for one of the songs in the film. Yes King Khan had a problem with the phrase "undie the condi", which appears in one of the musical numbers, feeling it was too sleazy.
Shahrukh Khan is very aware of the Censor Board too and is keen to protect his new project which lead to the meeting. Roshan had to explain that the term is slang for the term "Understand the condition" and had to back up his assertion with actual evidence before SRK was convinced.
Apparently, Shahrukh Khan is quite dumbfounded by the type of weird language used by the youngsters these days.
Roshan Abbas said, "I was telling him about the songs, when this discussion started. He asked me 'why are we doing this and what does it mean?' Shah Rukh was of the opinion that we should not use words like 'undie' and it sounded like kundi, which means bum in the South. I told him that this is actually a phrase which people use in North India.
"They use the phrase 'Undie the condi of the situ', which means 'understand the condition of the situation'. I also pointed out that this was, in fact, a popular phrase in school in the North and it has been passed down many batches now."
Abbas added, "SRK was stunned and said, I know that today’s generation says some weird things, but this is really different."
Perhaps SRK needs to stay in touch with a younger crowd.
